Goodwall has come into its own in the last few years, and we’re proud to have a whopping 2.2M+ users on our platform!
From the very beginning, we’ve been quite vocal about being an app designed specifically for students and young professionals. After all, there are tons of scholarships, internships, job opportunities, and professional and academic experiences to be had on this platform.
However, the Goodwall app is also an ideal launchpad for a third group of people — young entrepreneurs. In this post, we’ll walk you through a few reasons why Goodwall is a great place for entrepreneurial youth around the world to improve their communication skills.

“We’ve got big problems and small problems, from climate change to finding a dog sitter,” says Goodwall’s cofounder, Omar Bawa. “We’ve also got many solutions. But most of those solutions are trapped as ideas. For an idea to become a solution, that idea needs to be shared, it needs feedback and it needs support. You don’t need to be an entrepreneur, all you need is an idea to improve something and the courage to pitch it.”
